NDR - Nibbana Dhamma Rakkha 护法苑

*11th December 2017, Nibbana Dhamma Rakkha*

8.30-10.00am Meal Offering

7.30-9.30pm Dhamma Talk

“When we consider the fragile and fleeting biosphere that we live in, these changes we are seeing and experiencing all around us can easily lead us to fear: What is going to happen? Will my home be destroyed by flood or fire? Will the droughts lead to food shortages? Will all the birds and fishes die? Will our children and grandchildren – and we humans – survive? And is there anything I can do in response to this crisis that will truly make a difference?

One phenomenon that does not get a lot of attention is that things have a tendency to create their opposites: times of war can give rise to occasions of unparalleled kindness, painful losses can lead to liberating wisdom, and oppression can be a cause for ocean-like compassion. In a similar way the current stressful times are giving rise to resources to help us deal with that very stress. As modern societies speed up and break down, they also hatch the means to understand and counteract that drift. The steadily increasing popularity of the Buddha’s teachings in the modern world can be said to be one such instance of this phenomenon – because the malaise is so rife, the eagerness for a cure becomes all the more acute.”
Excerpt From: Amaro, Ajahn.

“For the Love of the World.” Amaravati Publications, 2013-12-20

Ajahn Amaro

Born in England in 1956, Ven. Amaro Bhikkhu received honours BSc. degree in Psychology and Physiology from the University of London. Spiritual searching led him to Malaysia, Indonesia andThailand, where he went to Wat Pah Nanachat, a Forest Tradition monastery established for Western disciples of Thai meditation master Ajahn Chah, who ordained him as a bhikkhu in 1979. Soon afterwards he returned to England and joined Ajahn Sumedho to help established Chithurst Monastery. He resided for many years at Amaravati Buddhist Monastery, making trips to California every year during the 1990s.
In June 1996 he established Abhayagiri Monastery in Redwood Valley, California, where he was co-Abbot with Ajahn Pasanno until 2010. He then returned to Amaravati to become Abbot of this large monastic community.

Ajahn Amaro has written a number of books. In 1983 with the blessing of his abbot, he moved to Harnham Vihara in Northumberland. He made the entire 830-mile journey on foot, chronicled in his 1984 volume Tudong: The Long Road North. He republished in the expanded book Silent Rain. His other publications include Small Boat, Great Mountain (2003), Rain on the Nile (2009) and The Island – An Anthology of the Buddha’s Teachings on Nibbana (2009) co-written with Ajahn Pasanno, a guide to meditation called Finding the Missing Peace and other works dealing with various aspects of Buddhism.
On December the 5th, 2015, Luang Por Pasanno, of Abhayagiri Monastery in California, and Ajahn Amaro, of Amaravati Monastery in England, were given the honorary titles of Jao Khun by H.M. the King of Thailand, in a ceremony at the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Luang Por Pasanno received the new name Bodhiñāṇavides, resonating Luang Por Chah’s honorific name of Bodhiñāṇathera, whilst Ajahn Amaro received the name Videsabuddhiguṇa. Both the senior Sangha bear the every wholesome qualities that such public recognition is designed to encourage.
